I see a lot of people talking about how we need disabled actors playing disabled roles. I agree but but we also need disabled directors, disabled writers or maybe just disabled people helping to teach the actor how to play the role correctly. for example if an abled person has been playing a character for two years on a tv show and that character becomes disabled, they can’t recast the character so the part is played by a disabled person but what they can do is hire a disabled person to coach the actor to make sure they are playing the roles correctly and to show them the realities of living with a disability. They can even hire a disabled writer or writing assistant to help the writers to get the story right and avoid negative tropes. Us disabled people need more than just being portrayed in the media. We need to be portrayed right and we need more disabled people involved to make that happen.
